Friday Caps Clips

Rob Carr

Daily Washington Capitals news and notes: Bye bye Baltimore Classic, scoping out the assistant coach scenarios, burying plus-minus once and for all and more.

Your savory breakfast links:

  • Searching for the ideal (other) winger for the Caps' top line and numerous other questions answered in this week's Mailbag. Keep those questions coming - you ask, we answer! [Rink]
  • One former Caps' assistant GM weighs in on the promotion of the most recent man to hold that title, Brian MacLellan. [ESPN ($)]
  • He probably won't be jetting off to Russia any time soon to party with the captain, but Barry Trotz is looking to build a relationship with Alex Ovechkin - and all of his new players. [CSNW]
  • He's also still in need of a few assistants behind the bench, with one potential candidate in his former assistant (and Panthers' recently-deposed interim head coach) Peter Horachek. [CSNW]
  • More and more people are turning their backs on the validity of plus-minus; but for those who have yet to see the light, point them right this way. [Arctic Ice Hockey]
  • Two years of "scary" ice conditions and one pane of plexiglass with mayhem on its mind, and that's it for the Baltimore Classic. Check ya later, Charm City. [WaPoCSNWPHT]
  • The latest random thing taking the internet by storm is NHL logos redesigned with Simpsons characters, and at last there is a Caps' one. Because offseason, y'all. [Next Impulse Sports]
